Swallowing My Own Blood

I’m swallowing my own blood

As a replacement for the food I don’t want to eat

I taste iron on my teeth 

the dogs are licking the wounds in my hands

The injuries on my tongue are from the lies I couldn’t say

The innocent world is throwing my bad mouth away

So I’m still swallowing my own blood

Like I did

Seconds before,

Minutes before,

Hours before,

Days before,

Months before, 

Years before,

Decades before,

Centuries before
